ALONE, a breakthrough Queer artist whose debut single "Everything" garnered over 50K views on YouTube, will celebrate the release of his second single “Fine” on Tuesday, April 12 with a return to the stage, backed by a 15-person live band. The live performance will take place at 8pm at drom in NYC's East Village.
"Fine" departs from the bright, classic RnB style of his first track and introduces listeners to ALONE's darker side with a Rock-inspired production. "It's the kind of song that makes you wanna take off your clothes and give someone a lap dance," the artist explains.
It is also meant to expand the prevalent notions of sexuality, masculinity, and what it means to be a sexy man today. “There are many expressions of masculinity and they all can be hot,” ALONE insists.
His powerful Blues-Rock vocals ride a dirty rhythm set by distorted guitars and a throbbing low-down bassline as the lyrics narrate a story of Queer passion. "I feel like today's culture looks at Rock music, including its Pop incarnations, as a 'straight' genre and I beg to differ," says ALONE from his NYC home. "The Queer legacy of Rock 'n Roll dates back to its inception with artists like Big Mama Thornton and Little Richard, and has always been present through artists such as David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, and Freddie Mercury — it's time we reclaim it.”
